December and January book haul

First and foremost I want to thank all of my fantastic followers! Yesterday I hit 50 followers and I cannot believe it! This may seem like a very small number for a lot of you, but I thought I would have 0 followers in the first few months, so it is huge to me. You are all wonderful people and I love you!


With that being said, today I will talk about all the books I hauled in the last two months. I’m combining them, because most of these are gifts and I was still celebrating the holidays in the first week of january. So without further ado, let’s get started!


I added a total of nine books to my collection. (I forgot to include one in the picture. Oops.) For me, nine books is a ton, but since I only paid for one of them it’s actually a great haul.


Numbers by Rachel Ward



My aunt gifted me this book for Christmas and I’ve already read and reviewed it. you can find my review here. I liked the book, especially the ending. It made me cry and I (almost) never cry when I read a book. Also, if you’re wondering, they changed the title to Deadline for the Dutch edition.


The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I got these books as a Christmas gift and I’m so excited to have them. I’ve already read Cinder and I loved it, you can find my review here. I haven’t continued with the series yet, because Scarlet only arrived about a week ago and first I have to finish some books for school, but soon, my friends, very soon.

Lange Dagen by Pia De Jongimg_20170129_122027



This is a Dutch book that hasn’t been translated to English. It’s about a 14 years old girl named Eva (that sounds familiar 😉 ) whose father decides they will travel to a unmaped region of Lapland. My dad was getting rid of a couple of books and he asked me if I wanted to keep some of them. This one caught my eye because of the main character. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m excited to see where the story will go.

Will we ever speak Dolphin? by Mick O’Hare, New Scientist


This is another book my dad was getting rid of. It’s full of funny science questions and answers. It’s a very light read and I think it’s going to be both funny and interesting.

On foot through Africa by Ffyona Campbell


This is the third and last book I recovered from my dads pile. Ffyona Campbell tells her story from when she walked from Cape Town to the street of Gibraltar. She must be a very strong women and I’m intrigued by her story.

The hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2)


As soon as the Dutch translations of this book came out I picked it up. I just love Rick Riordan’s books, but they have to be in Dutch. I’m always annoyed by the mythological names in the English editions. They are so butchered and I can’t stand it. In the Dutch edition, we just keep the names as they are.
Anyway, I’m sure this book will be as amazing as all Riordan’s other books and I cant wait to read it!

Library Haul

I love the library, it’s my main access to books and every month I take a ton of books home. For that reason I decided to include a quick library haul. Here is a list of all the books:
